Husbands are Irritating...

First, have you entered the GIVEAWAY yet?!?! Only one more day left and it's a doozy!!

So Amy at Living Locurto has asked us to share something that our husband won't get rid of that irritates us.

Well, considering that I am quite persuasive, my husband doesn't have anything left that I didn't like! But here are some items I have made him dispose of.

First, the pickup he drove when we met in 1993. This isn't the exact pickup, but it is close. It was a brown 1984 Nissan pickup with a flatbed. The bed had rusted out, so my husband made a flatbed on the back. It had a gold cattle guard on the front and was just ugly. Seriously, this guy is lucky I still fell in love with him when he showed up with it on our first date.









Next was his embarrasingly large collection of bolo ties. I laughed and laughed and laughed when I saw them. Then they miraculously disappeared. I'm such a bi**h sometimes, it's sad...















And finally, his GI-NOCEROUS snaggletooth. In the little town he grew up in, the only dentist they could get to come in was a quack. Honestly, he was a quack! No dental license or training! I would have asked to see his diploma after he put that monstrosity in my mouth, wouldn't you?? It was almost an inch longer than his other tooth and wasn't even close to the right color.















So just to even the score, I'll show you something that really pisses my husband off about me--giant boxes of random stuff!

This first box is full of random clothes, a dog purse (carrier), some little shelves, a few books, and some other random items. If you look closely at the book, you'll see it's called, "It's All Too Much. An Easy Plan for Living a Richer Life with Less Stuff," by Peter Walsh, who Amy wrote about a few days ago. Guess I haven't read the book yet, huh?












Oooooh, look at that cute scarf! That's going upstairs with me!















Next is a box of stuff that I pulled out of my Chevy Malibu when I wrecked it in January of 2007. Ummm, yeah, that's pretty embarassing...















And this one, which is filled with small plastic bags from the bank I worked at. What could possibly be in those bags? Hmmmmm, various body sprays, pictures, and what?? Awesome! I forgot about these too!! I bought them for a special event we had at our bank, but I'll get lots of good use out them, starting right now!













This is my Ronald McDonald scary clown look.









Hello, Bride of Frankenstein!! Does your hubby have a snaggletooth?









This my Tina Turner "what's love got to do with it" look.








Scary Goth Girl. Actually that one's kinda cute...








Can you say, Redneck Mullet??






And finally...



My Cher impersonation. I know! I TOTALLY look like her!!!

You are totally crazy, girl! You make me laugh!

Amy from Texas said...

You're killing me with the tooth! LOL!!

I was reading all about your husband thinking how he must have an awesome sense of humor... or either just doesn't read your blog! Then I got to your "even the score" part of the post and laughed out loud. I'll have to remember to do that next time I write about my husband.... because I SOOO want to goof on him, but know he'll get mad:-)

I think that is the exact thing that drive my husband crazy about me too. I have junk everywhere... ugh! I love how the book is just lying in the box of junk. Classic! I'm also loving the wigs! Where were you during all my Halloween posts? ha!

Thanks for making me laugh:-)

Amy from Texas said...

And who has Bolo ties???? You gotta be kidding me! ha. Yeah, he's lucky you married him:-) ha.

Kat said...

Too funny. When my husband and I first started dating, he had just gotten a new car. And gotten rid of one. I forget what it's called. Probably blocked it. But it's a car. But it has the pickup truck like back. Yuck. Yuck. Yuck. How shallow is it of me to say that I probably wouldn't have gone out with him again if he was driving that?!

And the wigs...I can't believe your husband isn't all about that. Imagine the roleplaying :-)

Bar-b said...

Girl, this post was great. Love it when you are in a Chering mood. You are awesome!

Deanna said...

Dr. Wifey said...

Teresa R said...

You are such a riot, woman!!!

I don't blame you about the bolo ties thing. The truck I can forgive, but I couldn't marry someone who wore bolo ties...LOL!

You make me want to get a bunch of crazy wigs now. Imagine the embarrassment I could cause my kids when they bring their first date home!

You are crazy...and you look just like Cher. Seriously.

The goth girl was my fav though.

How's WW going? I still haven't done the research and signed up...I suck! No wonder I can't get anywhere.

Christian said...

You should choose a box or two and just get rid of them, to show him how much you appreciate his getting rid of stuff for you!

Amanda@Imperfectly Beautiful said...

OH MY WORD!!! You got me with the snaggletooth...I cannot stop laughing. Seriously, I think I peed a little(tmi).

Coco said...

Your such a dork.

Brenda Jean said...

BAHAHAHAHAHAHA I have junk boxes too! I thought I was the only one:)

My husband had this black t-shirt that was sexy when we first met, but he would NOT get rid of the thing. Seriously, it had HOLES. It was nasty and he just kept on wearing it. I finally threw it out one day. Yep. It was NOT sexy any longer. It had to go.

Conservative Belle said...

Laugh.Out.Loud!! Tina Turner and Cher cracked me up.

momma said...

you are hilarious!!!!

Heather said...

OH. MY. STARS. You have to stop because I have a weak bladder as it is. I'm torn between your Cher impersonation (the tongue really makes the ensemble) and the mullet complete with redneck facial expression.
